Holidays – MINI style.
09/29/2008 – Whitby, Canada

Kris Kringle is in full speed this year, loaded with racy gifts from the new MINI Collection. Stylish outfits, accessories and great products for kids of all ages. These and many other great gift ideas from the new MINI Collection will be available in October at MINI dealerships and at www.MINIshop.ca (and for us USA folks, you can get there from the MINIusa website).

The perfect gift for a holiday full of love – the white I love MINI T-Shirts ($33.50) for men, women, and kids with imprinted “I love MINI” heart in Union Jack look on the front. Since unwrapping gifts is the best part of Christmas, each shirt comes in a silver gift bag with a heart-shaped gift tag to make giving this shirt for the holiday season that much easier.

This holiday you could give the gift of time with the MINI Clubman Cuckoo Clock ($135.50) or MINI Speedometer Watch. The Cuckoo wall clock, MINI style, has the look of a MINI speedometer. The Cuckoo is a smart clock- it won’t wake you up in the night because it is equipped with sensor for night recognition. During the day, a 1:93 scale MINI miniature races around the dial at each hour with the roaring sound of a MINI engine and the beep beep of the horn. The Cuckoo Clock is available in Hot Chocolate with a Pepper White MINI Clubman miniature or in Silver with a Chili Red MINI Cooper miniature.

The MINI Speedometer Watch ($190.50) can go from 00:00 to 00:01 in just 60 seconds. This water-resistant watch has a Swiss quartz mechanism, a MINI speedometer design, brushed stainless steel case and a black rubber strap.

Keep fashionably warm with the Ladies’ Scarf & Beanie 2-in-1($38.50). It is a combination of a toque and scarf in grey with pink stripes, which can also be worn just as a scarf. Looks cool and keeps you warm.

The fun Pop Style Shopper is an essential piece for daily outings. Additional Pop Style bags are available range from a small duffle to the handy Ammo, a small shoulder bag; bags start from $41.50.

Give a gift that rocks – the Men’s Tattoo Longsleeve from the MINI Collection “Not just a tattoo” series with MINI tattoo of a crown, eagles’ wings, and electric guitars. The large, black tattoo is printed on the inside of the shirt but shows through the white fabric on the front. MINI “Not just a tattoo” Collection starts from $44.50.
